Archangel Review: A good action RPG but not without its shortcomings

Archangel is a dungeon crawler from Unity Games and Black Tower Studios where you play as the eponymous archangel who’s been commissioned by Heaven to defeat the forces of evil on their turf. You’ll traverse a undefined nether realm that’s spread out over thirty levels, use gestures for combat, and upgrade your character with powers and loot that you find along the way or purchase. Outside of that premise, there isn’t much for a story along the way save for some of the levels having a brief introductory cut scene showing what it looks like, and a handful of subtitles. In short, you just go out and slay your enemies as the emphasis in Archangel is on the action. And just like this game features a conflict between good and bad, there’s also good and bad within the design of the game itself.
